Organization recognized for eleventh consecutive year.

Egg Farmers of Canada was named one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for the eleventh consecutive year. The award recognizes organizations in the Ottawa-Gatineau area for their exceptional workplaces and leadership in engaging their teams.

“It’s a privilege to be among the top employers in our community,” said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of Egg Farmers of Canada. “We have one of the best teams in the world—and it’s their collective efforts that allow us to deliver on our mission every day. They have shown tremendous leadership and skill, allowing us to adapt and respond to change all while making significant contributions to Canada’s domestic food system.”

From implementing initiatives that nurture a shared ownership of workplace culture across the organization, to adopting a hybrid work model and offering staff the latest tools to support collaborative projects, there are many reasons why Egg Farmers of Canada is considered a top employer. This also includes a tailored orientation program for new staff, a comprehensive approach to professional development and opportunities to give back through a volunteer program.


“Our workplace culture is built on shared values and an exceptional level of employee engagement. We empower our management team to foster leadership across their teams and provide regular touchpoints for our staff to offer input and perspective on our approach. These principles are some of the ways we maintain a close connection with our talented people,” added Lambert.
